DB Engines and Versions

Updated at: Apr 14, 2021 GMT+08:00

Table 1 lists the DB engines and versions supported by RDS.

For new applications, you are advised to use the latest major version of the DB engine, for example, MySQL 8.0. When you create a DB instance, you can select a major DB engine version only (such as MySQL 8.0). The system will automatically select an appropriate minor version (such as 8.0.17) for you. After the DB instance is created, you can view the minor version in the DB Engine Version column on the Instance Management page. The DB engine and version vary according to site requirements.
